Do I Take Thee, Raw, In Sickness and in Health?
The doubts are creeping in on me again.

night I was devastated to realize that despite my dietary changes and
increased vitamins, my hair loss problem has obviously not let up. No
more wishful thingking- I'll have to get serious about the medical side
of things. I think the main reasons I have delayed doing this is that,
in addition to being a poor college student who can't afford a bunch of
medical tests, I'm really afraid of being told that a raw diet is not
good for me. My fear is well-founded because my raw diet is the only
thing that has taken away my compulsive overeating and out-of-control
bingeing and given me more of a life.
This might actually be a
good time for me to tackle this problem, however, since my weight
basically stalled (I've lost70 lbs, but since then have hovered between
65 and 70 lbs lost). If I were steadily losing weight, I'd be less
willing to change my diet for fear of regaining. Since I'm not losing
weight the way I was earlier on, I can let the weight issue be less of
a distraction and focus more on the other aspects of my health.
the end I have to remember that overall health is my real goal, not
just weight loss. It doesn't make sense to lose weight at the expense
of other areas of health - that would be crazy! But I live in a crazy
society that values weight loss over everything so I have to remind
myself to have common sense sometimes. Not only am I going to make a
better effort to see a doctor and nutritionist, but starting today I'm
going back to Sparkpeople.com to record my food intake. The Raw Odyssey
